{How To} Make St. Patrick's Day Pretzel Sticks

Are you ready for green day?! St. Patrick's Day is TOMORROW! I made the pretzel sticks, for my co-workers to spread some green love. They are so easy and simple to make. And a great addition to any dessert table or party function.

These are Green with white drizzled across the top. If you are anything like me, you like pretzels, but sometimes they seem too dry by themselves. Adding candy melts candy coating to them is the perfect touch. I LOVE pretzels dipped in melting chocolate!

These are dipped in white candy melts and sprinkled with an array of colorful sprinkles to go with the rainbow of course. I was hoping that i would have been able to find some other colorful candy melts to really make a rainbow pretzel stick with them drizzled with different colors and lined up side by side to create a rainbow, but did not have all the colors I needed. 

To make these you will need:
Pretzel sticks
candy melts
piping back
tip number 2 or 3
wax paper

as for the candy melts, you can even use chocolate and drizzle with green and create any combo you would like.

Melt the candy melts according to package directions. Dip your pretzel stick in the melting chocolate one at a time and lay on the wax paper to dry. Repeat using a few more, but before they dry, you want to sprinkle them with the sprinkles. Other wise the sprinkles won't stick. Then let them dry completely.

If you are using the other method with drizzling, use all the steps above except adding sprinkles. Let them dry a little before adding the drizzle effect. Get your piping bag ready. Cut the end of your bag {if using a disposable}enough so you can drop your coupler inside, but not so big that your coupler falls completely through. Unscrew the top off your coupler, drop the big part into the bag, add your tip and screw the white coupler part back on. Pour the color you wish to drizzle into the piping bag and drizzle away using side to side motions.

Hope you enjoy!!
